Learn coding on the go

Learn coding on the go

‘Area 120’, Google’s workshop for experimental products, built an app that teaches you how to code JavaScript through a series of fun, bite-sized games, puzzles and quizzes.

Known as Grasshopper, the app takes you through basic coding definitions before you can start the exercises, and lets you set a practice schedule for reminders.

As you go through the modules, the puzzles get more complicated.

The 'about' section of the Grasshopper app states: “Coding is becoming an essential skill, and we want to make it possible for everyone to learn even when life gets busy. We made Grasshopper to help folks like you get into coding in a fun and easy way. And, we put Grasshopper on a phone so you can turn your commute or waiting in line into a learning moment. We hope you like it and that it helps you embark on or continue your journey in learning to code.”

The team revealed that while they are working on adding new lessons, they don’t plan on teaching languages other than JavaScript.
